antics and not putting the dealers away that we need do and talk about the education and the root causes of problems when you're sort of manufacturing these felony convictions with the consequences that bar opportunities for housing and other services that can be a problem and that needs to be looked at from a larger policy. timely we were proud to see of the progress with the data collection. we want it publicly available. it's great it's going to be made available to them but to put it up on a website would be fantastic. we do a lot of work around the state, realignment issues and the like and san francisco has lower arrest rate than we here and if those arrests are deprioritized we would use to san francisco as an example in the advocacy but we can't do it without the data so we would like to see that as well. >> thank you very much. any further public comment? hearing none -- oh come forward. no. public comment is now closed. please call the next line item. >> line item d, commission announcements and schedule of items identified for consideration at a future commission meetin

newspaper. >> president: i look forward to that joint education. next speaker. >> good afternoon supervisors. it is significant that with the new position of the podium the speaker can a longer see the computer or stop the clock. this is the first meeting of the new year, close to the time when newspapers review the previous year. let's take this opportunity to summarize the san francisco public library during 2012. the president of the library commission has been found guilty of official misconduct. this year it is finally unavoidable that the friends of the library are crooks and the continuing defense is exposed as self-serving, willful blindness. that that there was any credibility to lose. the city library has been found guilty of violating the sunshine ordinance and refer to the board of supervisors. attendance of the library commission meetings is so low that several would have been removed under the mayors announced attendance policy in the final months of 2012, a library commission only managed six meetings when the schedule called for nine. the whole schedule is below t

study look at other factors. you heard from commissioner turman about education. some of the numbers are god awful and the schools have improved so it's a much bigger picture than saying these are disproportionate. statistics, you have to be careful with them. i had a federal judge tell me and guy had 2-kilos of cocaine and it's a victimless crime and go into an area and tell the family that, and the person that over doses and the cost on society and look at it from a statistical perspective and i love what jjcj is doing. you're young and interested in the community and don't lose that and let's get the statistics tighter. and i prosecuted homicides and every one of them was drug related. >> again i mean i absolutely agree with everything that you said. that's why i was recommending a broader health. approach and the police department is involved in that solution and with the agency departments. i agree with having good data to work with and i'm glad the department is addressing that now and i am happy to provide a supplemental brief on the issues if i can get the data. >> i

outreach campaign and public education campaign in that regard is in order, and the other aspect of this that is also delicate is that the family members who are closest and who often are the ones that take advantage are the ones there present supporting so it's a very difficult balance to strike, and maintain the support with the respect. >> commissioner. >> i would just like to echo how fortunate we are to have the women work with the commission for years but since we are giving shout outs i would like to shout out to the police department and the chief and i think it was a year ago when you created this unit and housed them on the premier floor on the hall of justice and we fought for that and without that these people wouldn't be working in unity today and i want to thank the police department and the police commission for that opportunity. >> please call the next portion of line item three please. commissioner chan. okay. >> thank you for that presentation. i appreciate it. and the approach to all of these and looking at in a comprehensive way and the 55 page family violence co
